Before I started the university I checked severalBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Before I started the university I checked several ratings sights and almost all of them stated that the school was okay, BUT they would hold your money for grants ETC. I asked the school about it and they said that the negative comments were from students who were mad and just dropped out or failed a class.Now I am a good student, make good grades and don't mind the classes and yes they ARE holding my money. My classes have been paid for quickly and for months, but the school keeps given excuses why they can't refund my grants scholarships and other holdings even though the money is free and clear. Right now they have almost $10,000 just setting in their bank drawing interest while I'm trying to work and go to school. WE depend on that money especially veterans who are in rehab programs to live on. SO VETERANS BEWARE THEY WILL HOLD YOUR REFUND MONEY. I have attended two other universities and was refunded before the 5th week, but not hear. If your on a budget and depend on your refund money, find another school. I have gone to far to stop now. One Veteran told me they held his money for 6 months after graduation. They say it takes several months of VA to pay, but we all know they get a pay voucher as soon as they present the bill. My VA counselor even confirmed they have their money.

Question
Faculty and students are civil, respectful, knowledgeable, fBrightOther
Faculty and students are civil, respectful, knowledgeable, friendly and college material professionals. However, the course material do not reflect on real world application in my chosen field: security management. There is more theory and history lessons than teaching about the real world business needs so a graduate can actually qualifies for security management positions. I felt I've waste years of effort and money on this bachelor's degree.

After almost 7 months, I still have not been able to land a decent security job my security management degree is suppose to help me with. Oh I've got lots of work experience and tried, but the job requirements are not what I had school training for. I literally would have to get more course work in business (to underststand the admin environment) and accounting (to understand budgeting and resource allocations) to qualify for a management position.In conclusion, I would not reccommend APUS/AMU for this degree.

Question
This is an online school.Criminal
This is an online school. Geared towards the adult military student. I mean adult! Not 18 year olds. The teachers, anyone can call themselves a professor have no reality! If you want to succeed look for a school that understands study in the military! Understands working 6 day a week 12-14 hour a day shifts. The comedy, the problem teachers are not the teachers of my core classes. I would look at other schools. It is to late for me to change! Sadly I have to deal with this! It isn't cheap!
